Litigation Involving Powers of Attorney

Powers of Attorney can often be used as a tool for persons seeking to obtain funds from the elderly and disabled. Like wills and other estate documents, the law presumes that powers of attorney are valid. Powers of attorney can be challenged based upon fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, lack of capacity, mental incompetence, undue influence, and the like. Our civil and criminal experience places us in a strong position to challenge powers of attorney that have been improperly obtained or are being improperly used.
